Q:  Is there a change in maximum ramp weight?

A:  Yes.  The new max ramp weight is 3110 pounds.  For the 1972 through 1977 182P and 182Q models, this is an increase of 160 pounds.   For the 1978 through 1980 182Q models it is an increase of 150 pounds.  The theory is that ground idle, taxi, and run-up will consume at least 1.7 gallons of fuel, such that the airplane will weigh no more than 3100 pounds at takeoff.
